Virginia Nadeau Death, Obituary – Virginia Rae Burgess Nadeau, a lifelong resident of Perry, passed away suddenly on February 1, 2023. Services will be held at Perry’s First Baptist Church on February 6, 2023. After the visitation, the funeral will begin at 11:00 a.m. with Reverend Larry Wood serving as the celebrant.
The burial will take place in Perry Memorial Gardens following the service. She had just reached 95, a milestone that, having experienced so many important events, she thought amazing.
After she was born in Oklahoma in 1927, her family moved to Alpine, Texas, where she grew up grazing cattle and riding horses. When she was a teenager in the 1950s, her family moved to Georgia. She fell in love with Joe Nadeau right once after arriving in Atlanta, and they were married until his passing in 2017.
She brought food to their school events and frequently supported them loudly while she reared her three sons. She had established herself as a regular in the second pew of Perry’s First Baptist Church. She was eager to get the chance to prepare meals for various groups and was prepared to lend a hand in any manner she could.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Hugh and Gladys Burgess, and her five siblings, all of whom she adored and sorely missed. She also passed away before her 63-year-old husband Joseph Nadeau Sr. and her youngest son Charles Nadeau.
Her two sons, Joe Nadeau Jr. (Karen) of Buford, Georgia, and Jim Nadeau (Sheree) of Bonaire, Georgia, are the only ones left to care for her. She adored her five grandchildren—Zack, Caitlin, Sheridan, and Logan—as well as her one great-grandson, Caden, which should come as no surprise.
She loved her many nieces and nephews since they reminded her of her own sisters and brother. She also loved the Dallas Cowboys, her blueberry plants, and colorful flowers. She supported a variety of projects that meant a lot to her.
She was compelled to contribute $5 or $10 to numerous charities. She was especially fond of initiatives that supported Native American children. She said she didn’t want to be “greedy,” that she had plenty to give and help others. It is difficult to express how much we will miss her.
